I had my boyfriend pick a page this time, he picked page 165.

Connie raised her hands to her pale face. Splaying her fingers, she dragged them from her eyebrows down to her chin, as if indicating tears.

Since I am reading this one on my Kindle, I let Random.org pick a percentage where I would get the teaser from. It picked 20%.

An odd crackling noise made him turn towards the door. The sound faded after a second, leaving Guy frowning. If he hadn’t known it was impossible, he would have thought he’d heard distorted voices coming through the baby monitor.

I used Random.org and had it pick a number, it picked 260!

He hasn’t met that ‘special person’ yet but is happy to wait for the right girl.
Me too. Although of course I am waiting for the right boy.
The thing is, I think I might have found him.

I let Random.org choose between 1 and 327, and it picked 142!

Maxon could tell I was thinking about her. “What’s your family like?”
“What do you mean?”
“Just that. Your family must be very different from mine.”
“I’d say so.” I laughed. “For one, no one wears their tiaras to breakfast.”

I had my boyfriend pick a book out of the 3 book I had selected and let him pick a page + a passage that he liked. He randomly picked page 86 and found a brilliant passage. Plus he now wants to read the book himself. 😛

Her hood fell back and a shiver went down the wolf’s spine.
He swallowed nervously. “My little girl, what red eyes you have.”
Red Riding Hood said nothing.
“My, little girl, what gray skin you have.”
Red Riding Hood said nothing.
My, little girl, what sharp nails you have.”
Red Riding Hood said nothing.
My, little girl, what strong teeth you have.”
The better to eat you with, my dear, I say as we turn away from the horrific scene of gore and gorging that followed.

I used Random.org to select a page number for me, and that chosen number was 95.

Charlie lay flat on her back, cursing the morning rays that cast cheerful yellow streaks across her bedding. She squeezed her eyelids shut in a futile attempt to keep the light out and the sleep in. But it wasn’t the sun’s fault she’d barely slept a wink. Instead of counting sheep, she’d spent half the night counting the ways she missed Darwin…

I flipped through the book and landed on page 133.

The sound was loud and harsh. It broke the calm of the night sky, sending rooks circling into the air with terror.
His hounds went berserk, barking and biting each other’s tails. The call of the knight’s horn rang out over the valleys and mounds and tracks and moats of this land, shaking leaves from the trees and sending ripples through ponds.

Teaser Thursday ~ Sadie Walker is Stranded


I flipped through the book 3 times and stopped at page 125.

All variety of pants-pissing thoughts descended on me as I stared up at the fortress of trees marking the entrance to the forest. I remembered that we had no idea just how big the island was. It could be absolutely swarming with the undead or it could be some kind of killer bear sanctuary.
Carl’s knife was big but it wasn’t that big. There was a a bitter innuendo in there somewhere, but I was just too damn frightened to consider it.

Teaser Thursday ~ It Spells Z-O-M-B-I-E


I have to get out of here, Emily thought frantically. But the front door wasn’t safe –there was practically a parade of zombies marching down the street, and any one of them could catch her. Could transform her into –into– into–one of them.
